One Side of My Hairline is Receding More Than the Other! (with Photos)

hey doctor. I’m just wondering if I have a mature hairline or is it more? my hairline has certainly changed from when I was 18. also I cannot understand why one side seems to be receding more than the other and has been for years! I have naturally thin hair.

I have attached a picture that tracks my right side for over 2 years. a recent picture with my hair wet and also with a styling product in and then the left side which does not seem to change. you can use this for you site if you like.

Some men do not bald symmetrically, and in your case, that seems to be what is happening. The left side appears to be a mature hairline and the right side appears to be beyond just the mature stage. Propecia is a good drug to help slow down the process, though I wouldn’t expect regrowth there necessarily.

Since you indicated that you’re in the UK, I would suggest visiting a specialist like Dr. Bessam Farjo with offices in London and Manchester, so you can get an expert opinion on your hair loss situation.

  1. I’d definitely get that checked. It’s hard to say for certain but it could just be a mature hairline all round as the lower side appears to be almost touching the temple peak which would be a bit more juvenile than a fully mature hairline. I’ve seen a lot of celebrities that dr rassman has tentatively classed as mature hairlines who have much higher hairlines than you so I’d definitely ensure you have a detailed analysis done.

    That said your hair is very much like mine (just beyond mature line indicated balding but it wasn’t very advanced) and propecia has stopped it and contributed some hairline regrowth. Although hopefully for you it’s just a maturing hairline and propecia might not even be needed.
